The top 25 business directories to help you get found online.

It will come as no surprise that four out of five people search online when looking for services or products from a local business. That’s why the importance of showing up in those searches can never be understated. And one of the best ways to show up in a local search is to be part of one of Australia’s top business directories.

Listing your business on respected and high ranking directories can contribute to online visibility and help your business appear for those popular searches that include ‘near me’.

In this article we will explore the top 25 business directories in Australia that can help build trust with your audience and make your business easier to find online.

Not all directories are created equal.

There are over 400 business directories to choose from in Australia but some of them are actually going to do more harm than good, with a lot of directories having a low authority score in the eyes of Google. These contribute little value to your business nor do they help you rank in local search results.

So how do you choose which one or ones to list in? 

The team at Yellow Pages have looked at the best directories for 2024 and compiled a list that you can use to ensure you improve your local SEO and increase visibility for your business.

Networking with directories.

There are networking opportunities within directories that you can use to your advantage, you’re able to connect with other businesses/potential partners that could lead your business to partnerships, collaborations and referrals.

Reviews in directories.

Many directories also allow customers to leave reviews, providing legitimate feedback about your business which can boost its reputation and attract even more customers.

Consistency with local listings.

Consistency is key when it comes to listing your business on multiple directories, make sure your NAP (Name, Address, Phone number) are all accurate on each listing and make sure any links you provide are accurate and relevant.
